(Meeting on March 28 at 7 p.m.)
For this session, read the passages below. Consider Jane’s story in terms of the elements that determine human personality and destiny. How does the interplay between the elements of Jane’s strong character, her upbringing, and her close relationships shape the course of her life? Can we view Bertha (the madwoman in the attic) as an alternate view of Jane’s fate? How do we read Jane’s “good fortune” when she receives her windfall inheritance?
